A 60 kg skier leaves the end of a ski-jump ramp with a velocity of 26 m/s directed 23 above the horizontal. Suppose that as a result of air drag the skier returns to the ground with a speed of 19 m/s, landing 8.3 m vertically below the end of the ramp. From the launch to the return to the ground, by how much is the mechanical energy of the skier-Earth system reduced because of air drag?

I got -14330.4J, but this answer is wrong and I can't figure out why

I did KE= 09450
